International battery brand, Duracell, will announce the launch of its first Artificial Intelligence product in early 2019.
Duracell teamed up with Social Energy to create a home energy storage system. It uses cloud-based AI and software platforms to allow connected energy storage systems to trade energy. This capability could reduce energy prices for homeowners by as much as 90%, to 1.5 pence per kilowatt-hour.
Following around five years of development and testing, the product will launch in the first quarter of 2019.
National Grid has approved Social Energy’s domestic battery offering to participate in demand side response (DSR) as well as provide grid-balancing services such as frequency response.
